Michael Laver

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    This article discusses legislatures and parliaments in a comparative context. The first section begins with a study of parliamentary politics. It then moves on to legislative politics in the separation-of-powers regimes. The final portion of the article revisits this distinction in the context of the different types of empirical technique that can be used to measure policy positions of elected politicians.
